Mango Bay by Serena Fairfax

5 Stars

Wonderfully grand read!

Fairfax pens a remarkable story in Mango Bay. It's been a while since I've read Fairfax's work, and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to do it again. The characters were interesting and very intriguing. This author brings the story to life. There is a great chemistry between the characters, and a depth that makes them realistic and flawed. This book deserves a second read! (and maybe more). A very well-written story, and I enjoyed it. It is a mix of different genres, but if you're a romantic who also loves intrigue and learning about a new culture, this is the book for you. For one, so the reader can understand easily, she places a glossary of terms that may be unfamiliar to the reader. There are so many levels to this story, its culture clashes, the romance, historical (1950's), and then, of course, the lives of Audrey and Nat, trying to keep each other, and bring the cultures together to get their happily ever after. Magnificent story, kept this reader turning the pages. This story was intriguing and kept the reader guessing. It is also one of those inspiring stories, and the reader learns about the different cultures and the rituals. Fairfax writes, "Audrey stole a glance at her parents, the atmosphere in the sitting room having reached the right cool, disengaged temperature that she judged to deliver the news of her wedding. ... There was a pause then Margaret sent her a bleak look. 'You didn't tell us you were courting. And now you say you're married? To an Indian? To a Jew?' She shook her head. 'It's unthinkable ..." And that's just the start. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
